Nov. 5, 2013
MALIBU, Calif. - Pepperdine sophomore Marissa Chow earned the West Coast Conference's Women's Golfer of the Month award for October, the league office announced today.
Chow (Honolulu, Hawaii/Iolani HS) was the Waves' top finisher at both October tournaments against very strong fields. She tied for 11th place at the Stanford Intercollegiate and tied for 16th place at the Schooner Fall Classic. Chow averaged 71.67 strokes per round and three of her six rounds were below par.
The Waves finished a solid fifth place as a team at the Stanford event, which featured 10 top-25 ranked schools. Chow placed better than 24 other players ranked in Golfstat's top 100 there. The Schooner Fall Classic had six top-25 teams, including Pepperdine.
Chow had the best fall season of any of the Waves, as she posted a team-best 71.25 scoring average. Eight of her 12 rounds were below par and she finished in the top 20 at all four tournaments. Chow currently ranks fifth nationally by Golfstat and ninth by Golfweek/Sagarin.
Pepperdine is 2-for-2 winning the WCC's monthly award, as senior Grace Na (Alameda, Calif./Alameda HS) received the honor for September. This is Chow's first WCC Player of the Month award.
The Waves will resume play in the spring at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in nearby Palos Verdes, Calif., on February 9-11.
